Warren and I attended a support group from our agency tonight in Louisville. All the families there, with the exception of one, were adopting from Ethiopia. They were all in various stages of the process including a family who received their referral yesterday! It was really great to meet others in the same journey and get to have some face time with people from our agency.
As of now we are currently still trying to obtain a letter from our health insurance provider, grrr! However, we were given a alternative if we absolutely can not get it but it too may be a long shot.
Also, USCIS is currently processing our request for adoption and we should receive our fingerprint appointment any day.
IF, we receive that appointment before the end of next week and IF our insurance letter arrives before the end of the month, THEN, we "should" be officially placed on the waiting list! EEK! Once we are on the list it will take approximately 12 months for a referral, I know, that's a very long time. But, we are hoping to at least receive our referral and see their face by next Christmas and travel to meet them shortly after.
